Thanks to Maine Community Foundation and the Peaks Island Fund, electronic door openers will be installed at the Peaks Island Health Center adjacent to Fay Garman House on Peaks Island Thursday, Oct. 6. This is the culmination of a long time, much needed dream for the health center and island residents.

The Fay Garman House is one of eleven Volunteers of America affordable senior housing communities in Maine and Loudon, New Hampshire. For more information about our senior programs or any of our other programs, visit our website at www.voanne.org/senior-services
